Khloe Kardashian has never been the Kardashian to make the most headlines, what with her sisters all either pushing strollers with their boobs out, taking topless photos for fashion magazines or being 16 and wearing wildly revealing jumpsuits to major awards shows. But today, I like Khloe the absolute best. Why? Because her stupid Instagram photo is inexplicably making my severe fear of masks slightly less severe at this exact moment.
This morning, Khloe posted the following photo of herself:
The picture included this caption:
“I can never stay serious for too long. Yesterday at our@kardashiankollection shoot with Ellen Von Unwerth. Rocking KK shoes, skirt and blouse.”
Naturally, she had to plug the products (I would, too, if it were my company), but the most important thing about this photo is definitely not the clothes. It is not even the doughnut, which is crazy because I practically moved to the apartment I have now because it is one block away from Doughnut Plant and yes, doughnuts are a really significant part of my life. No, my friends–it is that mask.
Rewind: I am terrified of masks. I hate them, and if Halloween didn’t take place so close to my birthday and if I wasn’t always really drunk around that time, I would be horrified at the prospect of seeing so many masked people walking around, being…masked. It may stem from a fear of The Poughkeepsie Tapes, but other than that, I think I’ve always just been freaked out by masks.
But Khloe’s little masked Instagram post? Eh, it doesn’t feel terrifying. And I like that. Perhaps it is the leather skirt, maybe it’s the oversized doughnut, or maybe it’s just the way no Kardashian is capable of being in a photo that doesn’t involve sticking their butt out. Regardless, this is profoundly not scary to me and that is almost enough to make me love Khloe Kardashian. Obviously, I’m still afraid of masks but hey–if everybody who walked around it one were just another Kardashian, I think the world would be a significantly less scary place. Or it would be the most horrifying place ever where you’re required to get vampire facials and prenups on the daily. Either way.
